In recent years, the trend of the watchmaking industry must be the vintage copy watches. Many people really love the distinctive retro style which is more elegant and special than the modern ones, however, others are just following the trend of the market even they are not interested in such the design. Someone else buy them for they think the value of the vintage models will be increased. Here my suggestion is that the wristwatch you choose should be what you really love even if it is not popular or few people like it. Don’t follow others since each one has his own aesthetic standard.
Back at the farm now, today I will recommend two pieces of antique Rolex which are both made from yellow gold, being the favorite models of many Rolex collectors. The first one is the chronometer 6210, a Kew-A yellow gold Rolex Oyster Observatory Chronometer which could be regarded as the real chronometer that is certified by the Official Observatory, successfully passing all the tests from it. The rare Rolex imitation watch was released with limit amount of only 24 pieces, making it really precious.
The second one is the classic Day-Date which has always been nicknamed as President Watch. Yellow gold bracelet copy Rolex Day-Date features the distinctive dauphine hands and red words of Day-Date, which is quite different from the modern versions. The date has been also displayed in the red digits. The bracelet is quite special for the retro fabric texture.
Roosevelt, Kennedy, Nixon were both fond of the Rolex Day-Date, making the timepieces popular all over the world. That is also why we called yellow gold Day-Date the president watch. Besides of the American presidents, many European and American stars and outstanding elites love the noble fake watches ardently.
The first generation Day-Date Ref.6511 has been equipped with calibre 1055, which is modifying the components of date and day based on the calibre 1030. The next year, the movement has been improved to be calibre 1055B, improved Microstella rotor balance wheel, this is another time that Rolex used its exclusive patent on the Day-Date. Precise Rolex Day-Date replica watches have been of higher performance after the improvement.
In 1959, with the birth of the Rolex calibre1555, which had been regarded as the most practical and luxurious movement of Rolex at that time, it was used on the new Day-Date with a compensating screw rotor, which was highly evaluated with great accuracy and shock-proof effect at the time. Its influence to collectors is still there till now. The watch on the picture was Rolex Day-Date 1803 equipped with calibre 1555, which was the most famous model in the history of Day-Date. Till 1977, Ref.1803 was suspended. During the period, Rolex was changed twice. The glass had been changed to sapphire crystal, offering better waterproofness. water resistance is changed from 50 meters to 100 meters. In 1972, the second hand could be stopped by the pusher on the side.
1n 1988, Automatic Rolex imitation watch has been equipped with the new calibre 3135 which has been regarded as king of the self-winding mechanical movement. It offers greater precision and resistance to temperature variation. Day and date can be directly adjusted to the right one. 40mm Day-Date had been launched in 2015 as 36mm was not suitable for everyone. Meanwhile, the models with 41mm diameter had been suspended. Now Rolex only manufactured the Day-Date in 36mm and 40mm.
Given the buzz and angelic choral singing surrounding the new ceramic-bezel Rolex Daytona replica watches, we’ll give you a pass if you didn’t notice that Rolex quietly updated the Rolex Explorer. A subtle update, this refreshed Rolex Explorer features a set of fully lumed numerals and a re-sized handset, marking a course correction for one of Rolex’s most recognizable and enticing entry-level models. The Rolex Explorer has long stood as the entry point for Rolex’s most sporting group of watches, and it’s easy-wearing charm and versatile design belies its history as one of the brand’s most prolific adventure companions. This newly refreshed iteration is a practical and useful nod to the Rolex Explorer’s roots as a sport watch and adds some much-needed refinement to the modern design.
While the reference number remains unchanged as 214270, a closer look will suggest a considerable refresh against the current generation that was announced in 2010. The 2016 Rolex Explorer retains the 39mm sizing and, being a Rolex sport model, the case uses their 904L steel. The movement also remains unchanged, with the Rolex Explorer running Rolex’s 3132 Superlative Chronometer automatic movement, with 48 hours of power reserve, a Parachrom blue hairspring and Paraflex shock absorption.
With a minimal and function-driven aesthetic like that of the Rolex Explorer, it doesn’t take much to unbalance the design. The previous version (the 214270 up to Baselworld 2016) wore beautifully, but in the move from 36mm (reference 14270) to 39mm, some of the magic was lost. We saw the unfortunate shortening of the minute hand which was a bit too short to fill the dial or reach the minute track. With the new 214270, the Rolex Explorer returns to the proportions and design of the 14270.
Those brightly polished arabic numerals are out, replaced by lume-filled versions similar to those seen in previous generations. While this is a small change, considering both the sporting and flexible intention of a watch like the Rolex Explorer luminous copy watches, lume is important and should be an integral element in the Rolex Explorer’s design. Additionally, consider the Rolex Explorer’s roots. Today’s Rolex Explorer design is based on the 1016 Rolex Explorer which was launched in 1963 with painted numerals to offer as much glow as possible, a goal mirrored in this 2016 version.
Eagle-eyed types will likely notice the slightly updated handset, which is now slightly larger overall and features a longer minute hand. While the previous version’s minute hand was not terrible, its proportions were off, and this change is nothing if not welcome. The hands and markers feature a blue variant of Rolex’s Chromalite lume and the glow is similar to what you get from a Rolex Submariner or Rolex Explorer II. With a sporting lifestyle in mind, this newly updated Rolex Explorer retains the Twinlock crown and 100m water resistance of the previous iteration.
Admittedly, this might be more detail than most people wanted about a few new markers and a couple of new hands, but I think that the Rolex Explorer series replica watches are crucial but often overlooked touchstone of Rolex’s line up and sporting past. Since summiting Everest in 1953, the Rolex Explorer has been a piece of the Rolex ethos, and I’m thrilled to see a refresh that nails the details and ensures a fully sorted design for those who want a Rolex sport watch but don’t feel compelled to buy a Sub or a Rolex GMT Master II. With a list price of 5,000 EUR, the Rolex Explorer retains its position as the go-to entry point for a sporty Rolex and, in a successful return to form, is undoubtedly worth your consideration.
The Rolex Day-Date replica watches UK have been at the top of their non-sports collection since 1958. This year, celebrating its 60th Anniversary, Rolex released the Day-Date 40 in 18k white gold and Everose with a distinctive green dial. But the piece which has attracted our attention all this while is the Day-Date 40 in platinum revealed in Baselworld 2015. We got our hands on an example, and spent considerable time examining (and photographing) to bring you this review of the Ref. 228206 – 83416.
As mentioned, the Rolex Day-Date 40 Platinum high quality watches were unveiled in Baselworld 2015. Along with its siblings, the Day-Date 40 in yellow gold with a sunburst yellow gold dial, the white gold with a guilloché sectorial dial in silver, and the Everose gold (rose gold) with a stripped ‘Sundust’ dial. Platinum is a rare metal reserved by Rolex only for the very top of the line watches, and the retail price of S$ 84,050 with GST reflects that. The premium over the white gold version is a hefty S$ 34,000.
Rolex calls the watch Oyster Perpetual, Day-Date 40, Superlative Chronometer Officially Certified. Rolex-speak? Well each one has a specific meaning.
Oyster meaning this has a water resistant rating of not less than 100m. In this case, it is exactly 100m. Oysters in Rolex nomenclature usually means that Rolex sees this as a sports watch.
Perpetual is Rolex-speak for automatic winding. Here the Caliber 3255 (new in 2015) is designed and manufactured in-house. The movement has an autonomy of approximately 70 hours.
And Rolex Day-Date 40 diameter fake watches are what Rolex calls its watches equipped with a calendar. This is a simple calendar display of the day of the week at 12 o’clock, and the date with the attendant cyclops lens at 3 o’clock. This was the Rolex’s high end interpretation of the calendar. The date only watches are called Datejust. But in 2012, Rolex released the most complicated watch they ever made with the Sky Dweller which features an innovative Annual Calendar. The numeral 40 denotes the case diameter of 40mm. A 36mm case diameter Day-Date remains on the catalog and is denoted as Day-Date 36.
